division series went the distance.. baseball up too much score out of d.c., the nationals leading st. louis 6-1. if that holds, the giants will open up the national league championship series sunday in washington. now, every post-season division series has gone the distance. the big ticket, yankees orioles game 5 today. gave us quite a show. struggling alex rodriguez, the designated center benched in five of eric chavez. 5th inning no score. yankees raoul ibanez pokes one into right field. here comes mark teixeira. he will score yankees leading 1-
6:54 pm
0. 2-0 yankees in the 7th. curtis granderson back away gone. a second deck shot into right field enough for cc sabathia a complete game. struck out 9 only gave up one run. yankees win. yankees win final 3-1. they are going to play the tigers in the alcs saturday. now, the as were supposed to lose 100 games, remember? no. they defied all the odds. they won the rest of the last day of the regular season. it took a epic pitching performance by justin verlander just to stop them. talk about fan appreciation. nobody wanted to leave the coliseum last night after the tigers beat the as. >> let's go oakland! >> yup.
6:55 pm
the fans wanted a curtain call. they would have had like to have advanced to the alcs but the as really appreciated the fan support. >> we battle for them all year gave it our all for them and they did the same for us. they are out there waving those towels. everybody there cheering us on even at 6-0. >> we brought baseball back to oakland. there's going to be some people keeping the oakland as hat tight throughout our off season. today it was time to pack up. guys were clearing out their lockers as they head home. shawn do little will be getting a little live on the hug there. cespedes was signing a bat. good news for as fans. general manager billy beane said don't expect many roster changes. i caught up with him earlier today. >> there's something that's always hard to adjust to when the season ends so abruptly particularly on such a high the night before. it takes you about a week or so
6:56 pm
to decompress. >> hopefully keeping the band back together , huh? >> that's one of the good things. one thing we set out to do was create something that would be sustainable and have some stability for a couple of years. the one good thing about last night, beyond when i was looking down with the fans and they called the players out which i thought was really special, one of the more special moments i have had seeing something like that, was knowing that, you know, this team was going to be coming back by and large and i think that's a good thing. we're going to have a heck of a highlight film next year. we had so many great walkoffs. we led the league in those and put on a great show for the fans. it was special. and it was probably my most enjoyable year since i have been a general manager. all right. let's go to ohio. ravenna high school quarterback looking to make something happen as he is about to be tackled throws it behind his back and a guy catches it for a touchdown! like he is tossing a bouquet! throws it up and the prayers were answered.
